    Major Migrant Crisis in Europe (1819)
    0 234

    The EU is anticipating that over three million refugees could arrive to Europe by the end of next year. EU politicians cannot decide what to do with all these people; they're erecting fences, pushing migrants to take more dangerous routes to "the promised land."

    All Talk, No Action

    Following the first mass drowning of refugees in Mediterranean waters in 2013, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon called on the international community to "take action to prevent such tragedies in the future."

    Two years into the refugee crisis — leaders are still holding meetings to work out how to avoid a "humanitarian catastrophe."

    Meanwhile, nearly 800,000 refugees, asylum seekers and economic migrants have arrived in Europe already this year. And more than three million is expected to arrive by the end of next year.

      On Wednesday, former US Vice President Joe Biden doubled down and defended his romanticization of time spent working with senators who opposed efforts toward desegregation, saying it was wrong of his fellow Democrats to criticize his comments because there’s “not a racist bone” in his body.

      In a bold Monday night tweet, US President Donald Trump proudly announced the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) would begin removing “millions” of “illegal aliens” from US cities. Through what means? That’s anyone’s guess.
